Often called the King of the Boogie, John Lee Hooker's talking blues style, as well as his driving, rhythmic approach to guitar playing, have become an integral part of the idiom. This essential CD features two of Hookers lesser-known albums from his most inspired years: "Don't Turn Me From Your Door" (later reissued as "Detroit Special"), and the eponymous and long unavailable self-titled (aka "Blues Before Sunrise").

Both albums have been remastered and packaged together in this special collectors edition, which also contains 5 bonus tracks from the same period, including three obscure live cuts by Hooker (from the very underrated LP "There's Good Rockin Tonight!").
